Building OpenLDAP


Checkout the Source

git clone git://git.openldap.org/openldap.git

Prepare the Build Environment

OpenLDAP expects NSS and NSPR includes to be found in /usr/include/nss & /usr/include/nspr. Create symlinks if ncessary:

ln -s /usr/include/nss3 /usr/include/nss
ln -s /usr/include/nspr4 /usr/include/nspr

Build OpenLDAP

Testing the New Build


Clients

To test client tools like ldapsearch and ldapmodify you need to use the ones found in /usr/local/bin

/usr/local/bin/ldapsearch
/usr/local/bin/ldapmodify
/usr/local/bin/ldappasswd

Server

You need to replace the existing openldap libraries so the server can use the new ones, please make sure you back up the originals

Make the backup

mkdir /backup
cp /usr/lib/libldap* /backup

Copy in the new libaries (e.g. libldap-2-devel.so.0.0.0), replacing the existing versioned libraries (e.g. libldap-2.4.so.2.10.2)

stop-dirsrv    
cd /lib64
cp libldap-2-devel.so.0.0.0 libldap-2.4.so.2.10.2
cp libldap_r-2-devel.so.0.0.0 libldap_r-2.4.so.2.10.2
